From bones to bodies to spray painting break dancers, there is more than enough to scope out at tonight’s Third Friday. These are just a few exhibits you should be sure to visit, but you can always more info on the Artlink website.
Bony Process: Intonations for the Unnoted
Local artist Cherie Buck-Hutchison brings a poetic exhibit to Eye Lounge tonight that is more than just an installation exhibit. This interdisciplinary body of work melds the anatomical world of bones and muscle structure with the unnamed female figures from biblical history. This full walk-thru experience is meant to create a complete environment for the viewer to step into, so immerse yourself tonight from 6-10 p.m. at 4th Street and Roosevelt.
Molly Koehn + Crystal Gale Phelps
This object-based exhibit will feature a variety of media and technique from both Koehn and Phelps as they, “…examine control, of our bodies and our environment.” Koehn’s installation work combines contrasting materials, such as soil and concrete, to express our environment’s battle for control while Phelps uses her physical body as a muse of self-representation to convey the daily struggles for control we each endure. The true nature of the exhibit is to build a narrative between viewers as they maneuver the exhibit. Doors from 6-10 p.m. at 4th Street and Roosevelt. More info here.
5 at First
First Studio, located at 1st Avenue and McKinley, is proud to present an exhibit featuring five local artists that have been paired up with five adjectives: Established, Eclectic, Intriguing, Seamless, and Vibrant, to generate a cohesive show that literally embodies those same qualities. With such an expansive space to show in, there is always an exciting new piece of work to be seen around every corner. Be sure to make First Studio your first stop this Third Friday. Open from 6-10 p.m. Find more info here.
The Art of Marisa H.V.
Songbird Coffee and Fat Stache Studios are proud to present the artwork of local artista, Marisa Hall Valdez. Although Valdez is an established artist whose work can be seen at the Phoenix Convention Center, City Hall and in the streets around the valley, her exhibit will still embody her humble beginnings, as many artists got started showing in coffee shops. So, swing on down for a glass of wine or a cup of coffee in this ideal setting for any Third-Friday-Goer. Doors from 6-10 p.m., located on 3rd street and McKinley. Find more details here.
